Veterans get free relief through alternative medicine (Video)

 "Nearly 100 veterans have found relief through Healing Warriors Program, a Northern Colorado nonprofit that provides free and reduced-cost alternative medicine treatments."

For David Sykes, 63, that relief is at the prick of a needle. He travels from Greeley to Fort Collins every other week for acupuncture with Healing Warriors acupuncturist Abbye Silverstein.

The U.S. Marine Corps Vietnam veteran has worked with the program since August and found it to be “very beneficial” in dealing with post-traumatic stress disorder, a sciatic nerve injury caused by jumping repeatedly out of choppers and social issues caused by his frustration and pain.

I was in during the Vietnam era and it would have been nice to have this forward looking treatment available then. As the saying goes, better late then never.

Apple gets Corporate Cultural Health Award

It Is one thing for heads of state or private citizen to pay tribute to the great African chief and President in Mandela. It is another thing for a company to do so by putting Mandela Front and center on their website.

In a time when many companies stand for nothing in the era of Bankster's, greed is good and mediocre products, apples Moral tone and tenure stand out.

For this I judge that they get the corporate cultural health award for 2013. 

Both Jobs and Mandela we're great visionaries that left the world a better place than when they found it.

Possible Link Between DDT Pesticide Exposure And Alzheimer's Disease

Pesticides (poison for pest) that big pharmer infests our foods with is getting more scrutiny for its bad effect disease capability.

Alzheimer (size decreased) brain on top normal brain bottom

Let's take a commonsense cultural health look at Alzheimer's. Pesticides screw up a pest's nervous system, they shake and die. Him what do they tell us about Alzheimer's patients shaking. After forty or fifty years of ingesting pestisides, Humm 2+2=?

We must encourage mediplex's (Medical industrial complex) to stop allowing the FDA to bless stuff that can be harmful to our health.

Samsung Galaxy S4 caught fire (Video)

Galaxy S4 Burns while Samsung Sleeps. You won't believe what Samsung is trying to do to their customer. See Video and Samsung Email to customer. 

Hetep another Iphone clone (droid) bights the dust. So if you have a problem with your phone take it to a Samsung store for a friendly instant replacement. Oh, they don't have stores, Oh you say it will take 3 weeks if Samsung will replace it after you show "proof" your phone is kaput. Oh, you say they sent you an email to stuff in your mouth so you can not talk about the S4 that burns while you sleep. Email attempts to force you into taking down this video.

Le't Go to the Video Tape
Must be some kind of Republican corporations are people free speech thing.

From Email:
"...   on behalf of himself and for his heirs, successors, executors, administrators, agents, assigns, and for any person claiming through or under him, DOES HEREBY IRREVOCABLY RELEASE, REMISE, QUIT CLAIM AND FOREVER DISCHARGE SAMSUNG, .."

So not only does  Samsung want to force you not to tell your story as a free human being but they want to prevent your children and your children's children from telling your story.

Well I for one will put this on my blog and tell everyone I know how Samsung treats its customers. Personally I think Sam is done!

New Tool to Fight Leukemia Coming To America

"Human immune cells reprogrammed in the laboratory to attack leukemia helped drive out the blood cancer in adults and children with aggressive forms of the disease, according to studies on the new strategy.

The research, reported today at the American Society of Hematology’s annual meeting in New Orleans, showed that 15 of 32 patients with chronic lymphocytic leukemia experienced a reduction of their cancers and 7 achieved remission. In patients with acute lymphoblastic leukemia, 19 of 22 children experienced complete remission, as did all five adults tested.

The technology has now been licensed to Swiss drugmaker Novartis AG (NOVN) to open international trials, said researcher Carl June, a professor of immunotherapy at the
University of Pennsylvania. Multicenter trials will start in the U.S. next year at 8 centers around the country, and international trials should begin in 2014, he said."

Aunk's commentary.

This is great I will be a customer for sure. I always take my own vitals in between my 6mo Doctor check ups. Now the big one to crack is Blood Pressure without a cuff of any kind a remote blood pressure sensor would be worth its weight in gold. There are Iphone Bluetooth BP devices now and Iphone diabetes devices but to do it in Tricorder mode now that is something.

'What if an Amazon delivery drone crashes into me?' (Video)

 "Will spotting Amazon's fleet of "Prime Air" drones soon be "as normal as seeing mail trucks on the road today"? That's what Amazon is saying, after CEO Jeff Bezos explained Sunday that the company would, in the future, deliver packages by quadcopter. However, that future may be a bit further out than the revolutionary retailer can say. "

Normally I like new technology but this needs more thought. Cars and trucks I can see, Drowns? Will Iphones now need to be outfitted with drown detection apps? Will drones have blinking red lights like trucks? This is hurting my head. see U later.

5 Jaw-Dropping Medical Uses for the iPhone (pictures)

 "Over the past few years, tech and health-care companies have demonstrated that Apple's (NASDAQ: AAPL  ) iPhone has plenty of potential as a portable medical device.

Beyond being a phone, the iPhone is a powerful ultraportable computer with a touchscreen, onboard cameras, a microphone, and motion sensors. Those features make it a viable replacement for the brains of many modern medical devices -- allowing for the creation of much cheaper and smaller systems.

Analyze blood, Blood Pressure, EKG, Dermatology analysis, Ultra Sound and I have seen the Odoscope  (takes pics of ear infection and mails to your doc.

The iPhone as a glucose meter
Diabetes patients have to check their blood sugar levels regularly with glucose meters. These devices traditionally require a pinprick to dip a blood sample onto a strip of glucose paper, which is then inserted into the glucose meter to be measured.

The Iphone simply is killing the Iphone knock off droids in Medical apps. If you have a serious medical app you are going to put it on the gold standard mobile computing platform first.
